Fun facts about Beaches for Kids

It can take thousands of years for a natural beach to form.

Depending on the type of sediment that makes up the sand, beaches can come in many different colors such as: white, gray, gold-yellow, brown, red and black.

The most significant threat to beaches is natural erosion.
